Santa Barbara

You don't need to catch a flight every time you want to take a break from real life to vacation! My family planned this mini vacay to Santa Barbara because with all of our busy schedules we did not have the time to fly anywhere. 
The only experience I had in SB before this was playing a volleyball game at the high school and immediately driving home, so I considered this my first time. We stayed at the Ritz Carlton Bacara and it was one of my favorite resorts I have ever been to! 
Not only are the views amazing, but the amenities at this resort are nothing like I have ever experienced (and of course, I took full advantage).  To prove it I will share my daily routine while there: I woke up and walked to their small coffee shop, then proceeded to my workout class (I loved the TRX one), then I laid out by the pool all day long with frosé in hand!
Oh, and how could I forget my spa day?! One day I took advantage of their spa with an hour massage. Let's just say I would go back just for my few hours in the spa. Pictured here is the adult pool in front of the spa, which I really appreciated because I could continue my R & R. But, their main pool area was where my family and I passed most of our time. 
One night we went into town where the annual Fiesta Festival was taking place! It was such a fun vibe around the downtown area and confetti everywhere!!! It was unplanned timing on our part, but we enjoyed being apart of the locals' fun.
My mom is the queen of concierge lounges because they are so convenient and while it seems like a splurge, it is easy to get your money's worth during your stay! The Bacara's options were delicious and the staff was so so nice! I am already planning to go back because it is just a little piece of paradise that is so close to home!
